Something of interest in the On The Media program from the 21st, in the
story about WWII - the LoC
provided recording equipment for reporters going to the front so they
could capture "native" musicians along the way, and the resulting work
was quite amazing!
LoC gear, "halftracks" with a new definition for the reel to reel folks,
and realtime field recording and war sounds - something for everyone
here... (I sent it separattely to the other groups I'm on).

Interested in comments if you have any.
